Florian A. “Weck” Weckwerth, age 81, of North Hudson, WI passed away on October 21, 2012 at his home. 

Weck was born on October 11, 1931 to Edmund and Rosella (Dosh) Weckwerth in Stillwater, MN. He attended St. Mary’s Elementary as well as graduated from Stillwater High School. Following his education, he enrolled in the U.S. Marines. Upon returning, he married Maxine Lindstrom on August 17, 1947 at St. Michael’s Church in Stillwater, a marriage that would be blessed with their one child, Mark “Bubba.” Together as a family they owned and operated The Rustic Hut in Burkhardt. Weck worked as a sprinkler fitter in the Twin Cities, and passed this passion on to his son, Mark. After retiring, they sold the business and the family home and moved to Minong, WI, where they enjoyed many adventures at their cabin home. Weck spent his last years enjoying the company of his son, as well as caring staff members, in his home in North Hudson.

Weck is survived by his son, Mark; brother, Frank “Bud”; sisters, Patricia and Fernie; dog, Daisy; along with many nieces, nephews, and loving friends and family. He is preceded in death by his wife, Max; his parents, Edmund and Rosella; sisters, Francis and Florence; and cat, Fingers.
